Think of blogs as self-published mini articles. Share your experiences and challenges. Share your successful and failed strategies. Share your proven techniques and best practices. And don’t forget to solicit comments from your peers so we can all learn from the collective knowledge and expertise of our thriving community.

I will focus on engagement by incorporating interactive activities and discussions into my training sessions. I will use various online platforms and tools to create a dynamic learning environment that encourages active participation from my students. For example, I might use breakout rooms for group discussions, online polls for instant feedback, and multimedia presentations to enhance the learning experience.

To ensure effective learning, I will also include quizzes throughout my training sessions. These quizzes will not only assess the students' understanding of the material but also serve as a way to reinforce key concepts. I will design the quizzes to… >>>

Wisdom Quote by Phil Collins

My students enjoy exchanging quotes during our morning huddle, so decided to share a teaching quote with my peers.

Enjoy and make it a great day :)

”In learning you will teach, in teaching you will learn.” Phil Collins


Using your skills in the virtual classroom can be a very successful thing if done correctly.  There are several ways to approach your new classroom.  Participation is key and, but it has to be engaging with the students.  Providing feedback to the students as often as possible will improve the student, instructor communication.  Also, having a module of your class and the course management system will provide you as an instructor with fool proof learning objectives.

In principle, thanking you for the course was very enriching, it will add exponentially to your career as a teacher and I promise to develop more courses.
On the other hand, I would like to tell you that the years that I have shared in the academy have allowed me to develop a strategy with my students. I empower them and I always tell them that 🎶I'm Unstoppable today🎶, this allows me to hijack their attention, and only then do I achieve the transmission of knowledge in a very assertive way.

Teaching Online

I learned to succeed in online teaching I need to have everything organized. Everything from course materials, course technology, lesson plans, action plans, grading rubrics, policy procedures, etc. 

The structure of my classes should engage all of my students creating an interactive learning environment.  

I need to prioritize effective communication with all of my students.  

Assume nothing

I recall my first student. I was a first semester grad student in biomedical engineering; my student was a freshman with aspirations in the same field.  As I began explaining a biochemical pathway, it became clear this student had no knowledge whatsoever of the concept of 'electrons'.  I had assumed that this student, having graduated high school and demonstrated a passion for science, would have a baseline skill set.

Common sense is often not common, even less so the more geographically and culturally diverse our classrooms become.  In order to serve our broad communities, we must recognize these opportunities.

Online teaching techniques

This course is reminding all instructors to understand the subject matter at hand.  We need to make sure we are able to understand the concepts as well as the knowledge to teach students remotely.  I also appreciate the value on supporting students, which can be impactful towards their experience.  Students need to feel supported in their education process to achieve the goals they desire.  


I learned about the many different on line tools and how to choose which is the best for the learning environment. I found this helpful as I am brand new to teaching.

Students DO not engage if you don't

You have to always start strong and be on a course in the beginning because this really sets the tone for online learning.

Share your wisdom

Dear Peers,

I recently completed a training course, and I wanted to share with you some of my reflections and my action plan for applying what I have learned in my workplace.

During the course, I gained knowledge and skills related to project management, including effective communication, team collaboration, and time management. One important takeaway for me was the need to delegate tasks and responsibilities to team members effectively. In the past, I have tended to take on too much work myself, leading to burnout and delays in project completion. Through this training, I learned how to assign tasks to… >>>

Learning journey

I am an educator who has not stopped my learning journey. Every day is an opportunity to learn more and be better. I use training and further education to challenge myself on things I have yet to discover. An inquisitive mind is a non-ending learning mind.

EL102: On Line Teaching Techniques

I learned that in order to be a successful CMS instructor I must know not only about my discipline, but also that I must be empathetic to generate confidence in different learning environments, such as asynchronous forums, synchronous classes, and monitoring of students' academic performance. The tasks are vast and can be conflicting, but getting organized is professionally exciting.
I hope to put into practice what I have learned with teaching jobs that are enriching for everyone.

Action Plan / Course Takeaways (EL102)

It is clear that distance education is not easy on the student nor the professor. I have taken college courses during covid, and I have seen how hard it is to remain focused for hours on end, staring at a computer screen, with little to no student interaction via Zoom. 

Now that I am the instructor-to-be, even though my courses are set to be in person, I have learned a lot about the types of students, how to deal with certain behaviors / issues, and that as long as I am fair with my students, I should be okay. Make… >>>

Great Tools!!!!

This training gave me a better picture of the e-learning audience. Modifications on some modules will be implemented with suggestions provided. Great presentation and easy to access.  

Thank you!

Timely feedback is essential component in communicating with your online students.

Students seem to appreciate getting timely feedback and grading of course work.

Student online learning

Students to be successful in online learning but be engaged. If there is only tutoring and multiple choice questions, the learner will not engage. Make sure you know what the student's prior knowledge is before scaffolding their learning. 

Action Plan

This was an excellect course.  I currently Have a weekly Discussion Board with a new topic.  I am interactive on the Board.  I take opportunities to involved students in all Live lectures by drawing on their experiences and everyday life.  I have recently been included some example problems into the lecture portion of the course that I normally would use in Office Hours.  This is a little difficult when I am lecturing to myself - no students are in the classroom - and many may not watch the recording.

What i have learn

it is important to give the student the same experience online as well in a classroom 

Broaden your help to outside the classroom

Post local events and fun things to do on Announcements on the LMS.

new paradigms in evaluation

With this new vision of the development of online courses, I will be increasing activities focused on student participation by 30% more, for example: Blogs and concept maps.
